Lightbulb moments for you and your pupils This book explores the ‘big ideas’ in maths to help trainee teachers confidently teach the curriculum in a way that engages children and focuses on understanding, rather than memory, for those lightbulb moments. Covering the major concepts in simple terms, whilst carefully linking to the National Curriculum, it shows how they can be used to enable learning and support mathematical mastery. A focus on explaining misconceptions and errors will strengthen trainees and teachers own mathematical subject knowledge, while also giving them the confidence to deepen their understanding of the children they teach. Key topics include: Problem-solving, reasoning and developing fluency in maths Place value and counting systems Measuring money, time and weight Geometry, and understanding space and shape Fractions and statistics for the primary classroom This is essential reading for anyone studying primary mathematics on initial teacher education courses, including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS) and postgraduate (PGCE, PGDE, School Direct, SCITT) routes, and also NQTs. Robert Newell is a tutor in primary education at the UCL Institute of Education, London.

The new emphasis in the Singapore mathematics education is on Big Ideas (Charles, 2005). This book contains more than 15 chapters from various experts on mathematics education that describe various aspects of Big Ideas from theory to practice. It contains chapters that discuss the historical development of mathematical concepts, specific mathematical concepts in relation to Big Ideas in mathematics, the spirit of Big Ideas in mathematics and its enactment in the mathematics classroom.This book presents a wide spectrum of issues related to Big Ideas in mathematics education. On the one end, we have topics that are mathematics content related, those that discuss the underlying principles of Big Ideas, and others that deepen the readers' knowledge in this area, and on the other hand there are practice oriented papers in preparing practitioners to have a clearer picture of classroom enactment related to an emphasis on Big Ideas.

Mastery in Primary Mathematics contains clear, practical guidance for both teachers and leaders on how to implement a mastery approach in the classroom that transcends any particular context, school type or scheme currently being used. Filled with research-based evidence, case studies and concrete examples of teaching for mastery used successfully, this is the ideal toolkit to implementing a mastery approach across a school, regardless of expertise. Moulding pupils into confident and successful mathematicians is one of the most important jobs of a primary school. It can also be one of the most difficult. Teaching for mastery gives pupils the best possible understanding of mathematics and implementing it involves a two-pronged approach: mastery must be embedded in the classroom, but will only work with the full support of the school's leadership team. Based on educational research and school case studies, Mastery in Primary Mathematics gives practical advice on introducing and sustaining teaching for mastery, with sections for both class teachers and school leaders. In this must-have guide, Tom Garry, NCETM Maths Mastery Specialist Teacher, covers the areas of variation theory, mathematical reasoning and the use of correct mathematical language, and equips leaders with the necessary tools to make the mastery approach work across a school. With a view to planning at three levels – curricular, unit and lesson – in order to fully arm educators with the means to plan effectively, Tom draws on cognitive science as current developments in this field are crucial to understanding how children learn.

'Nick Pratt's book looks in detail at the real meaning of teaching mathematics interactively in primary schools. Each section is set clearly within a context, is linked by 'key ideas' – the important bits to think about – and is summarised to give a succinct close to the chapter's content and thinking. It is a book that the reader will definitely find useful and thought provoking. It certainly made me consider how small changes and a wider variety of approaches in the classroom can make big changes in children's learning and understanding of mathematical concepts' - Mike Eatwell, Primary Maths Advisor, Bristol LEA Using a whole-class, interactive approach to teaching mathematics is a key feature of the National Numeracy Strategy (NNS), and this book looks at not only what works but also why things work. Teachers will be able to understand why and how the various teaching strategies they are using in their classrooms have a positive effect on children's learning. The book covers: " how to engage in meaningful reflective practice that will improve your lessons " how to use whiteboards " making mathematical meaning through talk " getting the whole class interacting " thinking, talking and acting mathematically " teaching number - starting points " teaching shape and space - starting points " developing your interactive teaching " a glossary of terms It is aimed at both practising and trainee teachers, and offers clear subject guidance as well as an explanation of a key part of the NNS. It supports both individuals and mathematics subject leaders delivering INSET to their colleagues.

`There have been few mathematical texts which cause readers to smile, but one of the great strengths of this book is the consistent good humour. Hiding in the explanations of more abstract concepts are unexpected images, such as the "two thousand sets of zero elephants placed inside these brackets [ ]", which surprise and entertain, and so render difficult ideas memorable' - Mathematics Education Review This is a substantially revised and expanded edition of the authors’ earlier book, Understanding Early Years Mathematics.

This practical book provides pre- and inservice teachers with an understanding of how math can be learned through play. The author helps teachers to recognize the mathematical learning that occurs during play, to develop strategies for mathematizing that play, and to design formal lessons that make connections between mathematics and play. Common Core State Standards are addressed thorughout the text to demonstrate the ways in which play is critical to standards-based mathematics teaching, and to help teachers become more familiar with these standards. Classroom examples illustrate that, unlike most formal tasks, play offers children opportunities to solve nonroutine problems and to demonstrate a variety of mathematical ways of thinking, such as perseverence and attention to precision. This book will help put play back into the early childhood classrooms where it belongs. This book: makes explicit connections to play and the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics; offers many examples of free play activities in which mathematics can be highlighted, as well as formal lessons that are inspired by play; and provides strategies for making assessments more playful, helping teachers meet increasing demands for assessment data while also reducing child stress.
